Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 14, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta May LITHIMDOI HIRALD-ai Foyt will start race from pole position INDIANAPOLIS A. J. Foyt captured the front-row pole position Saturday for the May 26 Indianapolis 500 auto standing aloof of a raging rules dispute that shot down some of his challengers. Foyt steered his home-made Gilmore Racing Team Coyote around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway at a four-lap average speed of 191.632 miles an hour. It was by far the best speed of a controversial first round of trials to set up a field of 33 starters. It also was the highlight of a day that saw the track virtually taken over by streakers and unruly crowds during a three-hour rain delay. One streaker was hurt when he attempted to climb a new observation tower at the start- finish and a security officer was injured track officials he was beaten up by a gang of spectators. a crew member of one of the race cars was hurt when he fell beneath his machine on Pit Road. Identified as Jim Vogrin of he was taken to hospital with a compound fracture of his right leg. Foyt was the first driver to make a qualifying run on a day that opened with bright sunshine and ended in thundershowers. He took only one warmup lap before setting off on a 10-mile run that gave him his first pole starting spot at Indy since 1969. His first circuit was his 192.555 m.p.h. But he slowed slightly on each succeeding lap as he completed the four circuits in an elapsed time of three 7.86 seconds. Nine other drivers made their runs before the rain and five others got into the lineup before another downpour closed the circuit for the day. Before the Wally Dallenbach won the middle front row position with a speed of 189.683 m.p.h. in an Eagle-Offy. Pole position A. J. Foyt will have the Indy inside to start Snobbish look gone from game By WILL GRIMSLEY DALLAS It isn't Wimbledon. It isn't Forest Hills. The tradition and stuffiness of these aged tennis extravaganzas are being supplanted by hawkers and hucksters. Tennis is taking on a new face. Maybe it's all for the good. The once snobbish country club enjoying a worldwide popularity is now one part Madison Avenue and two parts Barnum and Bailey. This was demonstrated last week when the revolutionary World Team Tennis concept made its debut and Lamar Hunt staged his World Championship of Tennis in Dallas. The big show here ended Sunday when John Newcombe sounded the midnight gong in the Cinderella story of 17-year- old Bjorn Borg of Sweden. Velvet upholstered chauffeured by long legged college beauty queens in green white boots and cowboy conveyed guests from their hotels to the Moody Auditorium. A Rolls Royce was pulled up in front of one inn to pick up comedian Dan Rowan. And traditional tennis whites are out Teddy the London is outfitting the women players with ballerina tennis dresses that match their personalities. And the men are going for greens and yellows in increasing numbers. The noise ban not only is noise making is encouraged. In WIT sponsors handed out megaphones to all fans and urged them to yell as loud as they could even when a guy was serving at match point. Gongs in honor of Australia's Evonne Goolagong are part of the ticket at Pittsburgh. Ring them as loud as you can. Old stodgy tennis reluctant to may be turned off by the new approach. At the same the men who hang around at the neighborhood pub and the women who are interested in what has been considered the more manly sports of football and baseball may suddenly be inspired to try the new kettle of fish.
